Coloured Pencils on Kraft with TAWS

Cards, Halloween Card, The Alley Way Stamps

Spooky salutations my creative friends! I hope you’re enjoying a lovely weekend. Today I’m on the Alley Way Stamps blog sharing another haunted how-to video.

This week I’m sharing my sweet tooth while I use my absolute favourite Halloween stamp set, Ghoul-Friend. You can watch the tutorial video below, or on my YouTube channel.

I stamped the images onto kraft cardstock, and then used my Prismacolor pencils to add some vibrant pops of colour to the sweets. Since it’s Halloween, I certainly couldn’t leave the creepy crawlers out of the fun, so I stamped the spiders and bats as well.


That’s it for today. Thanks so much for dropping by. Happy haunting!


Until next time,



TAWS and Prismacolor Pencils

Any occasion, Cards

Welcome! Today I’m back on the TAWS blog sharing a card and how-to video. For today’s card I used the Tooty Fruity stamp set and colour pencils to create a fun retro looking card. You can watch the video,below, or on my YouTube channel.

I created this one-layer card with a custom sentiment, and lot’s of Prismacolor colouring. Of all my colouring mediums, I find coloured pencils the easiest and fastest. I also love the bright blended look I get when I use paper stumps and an odorless mineral spirits to blend the colours. I only own a tin of 24 colours, but that is plenty for my card making needs.


There is lots more inspiration over on the TAWS blog, so stop by and see what projects the talented DT are sharing today.
